Nedarim 67: Revoking a Young Woman’s Vows

Another quick December 31 request for support for Talking Talmud. || Introducing the halakhit pertaining to a husband and father being able to revoke a girl or woman’s vows. Revoking being a different treatment of the vow than a sage’s annulling a vow. And with recognition that this treatment of a woman’s vows may be troubling. The daf introduces the most complicated case of a betrothed young woman, under the auspices of both her father and her husband at the same time, and both are needed to revoke her vow. Plus, the biblical verses that provide the sources of these cases.
